Biography

Hans Thomalla, born in Bonn, Germany, is a Chicago based composer. He is Associate Professor
of Composition at Northwestern University, where he also codirects the Institute for New Music.
His works explore the double-bind character of music as acoustic reality as well as culturally
and historically formed expression, constantly following materials transform from one form of
musical experience to the other. He has written chamber music as well as orchestral works, and
a particular focus of his activity lies in composing for the stage: his opera “Fremd” for soloists,
choir, large orchestra and electronics, was premiered at the main stage of the Stuttgart Opera in
July 2011. Hans Thomalla received degrees from the Frankfurt Musikhochschule and from
Stanford University. He has been awarded numerous awards and fellowships, among others the
Composer Prize of the Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung, the Kranichsteiner Musikpreis, and the
Christoph-Delz-Prize.
